What we do for entrepreneurs

Doing business internationally comes with many challenges. A new language, culture, different business customs and laws and regulations do not always make things easy. Our specialists are ready to guide you through this process. We do this by, among other things:

  • Assistance in navigating the (international) field.
  • Pointing out government programs and incentives.
  • Inventorizing any bottlenecks or obstacles.
  • Reaching solutions together.

A practical example of international business

Imagine that you decide to expand your business in the water sector into the Asian market. Whereas in the Netherlands the water sector has clear guidelines, in Indonesia it is a bit more complicated. To find out how the water sector in Indonesia works and whether there is interest in the product in question, we put you in touch with the Netherlands Business Support Office (NSBO) in Indonesia. These trade offices can be found all over the world. Together with the embassy of the country concerned, they provide internationally active companies with advice on:

  • Market Information
  • Collaborative partners
  • Local laws and regulations

NOM makes sure you get in touch with the right parties. This way you are assured of reliable sources, information and contacts. Are you looking for more information about bottlenecks and obstacles? Then also read our blog on international entrepreneurship.

Subsidy schemes for international business

The province of Drenthe has various subsidy schemes. These include the voucher scheme for hiring external expertise such as translators, tax specialists and lawyers. Because of the different legislations it is advisable, for example, to translate and legally check delivery terms. There are also national subsidy opportunities such as the Starters International Business (SIB) scheme. This allows you to hire a coach to guide you through various issues such as drawing up a concrete plan of action and informing you about networking opportunities. Would you like to know which subsidies apply to your situation? Please contact Wibo van Wier.
